So that all which fell that day of Benjamin were twenty and five thousand men that drew the sword; all these were men of valour.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

20:46 twenty and five thousand men. Judges 20:15 says there were 26,000 men of Benjamin that “drew the sword.” Since 25,000 fell on “that day,” evidently a thousand had already been slain during the previous days of fighting. The number 25,000 seems here to be a round number for the more accurate count (25,100) mentioned in Judges 20:35.
